Summer Track – Session #3


For the second week in row, the rain poured on us. Yet, this week the thunder and lightning remained at a distance. Letting us get a full evening of activities completed.

Several groups brought out their young kids so the 50 and 100 meter runs were super busy. James ran a 4:28 mile. Bert followed close behind him. Spada keep the 50+ group honest by nearly running a sub 5:20 mile.

This week’s activities culminated with a 5k run. Bert again showed a yeomen’s strength by running a 15:28 in a solo effort. Second place was nearly 90 seconds back. Nathan, who is part of the Running Works program, and Rich fought through the steady rain that descended on the track to finish well.

Much appreciation goes out to all of the runners that attended.

 And a special kudos goes out to the runner's parents. Mary Kate’s kids knocked out some great time 50 and 100 meter efforts. Chase appears to have captured the running genes from both sides of the family. He roars down the track with a smile on his face.  

Summer Track continues with a makeup event tomorrow night - 6/22/17 – 6 PM. We will follow the usual schedule of events finishing off with the 3200 meter run.

See you then,

The Cool Down Runner
